SHIPPING. W. R. Eck of The swa LioW. June 17, 1823.-The Swallow, Ross, from London, 31st January, unfortunately ounded coming up the river on Moogra tty Point (James and Mary's) on the 16th, and the pilot finding that she was sinking fast, run her ashore on the western side of the river. He reports that she is entirely under water; it is probable, however, that a portion of her cargo will be saved, as application for assistance is made, which is no doubt ere this dispatched to her.—Cal. Jour. We add the following particulars from an Hurkaru extra :“The ship Swallow, Captain Ross, was lost at four P.M. this day, in crossing the James and Mary's : the second mate, boatswain and one seaman lost, and in all probability more lives. The lady passengers (three)—children (six)—and several gentlemen are now iu my house, in the greatest possible distress, having lost every thing but what they stand in. The ship struck and sunk instantly.”—Fullah Farm, June 16, 1823. June 20.-A letter from Fultah, dated Wednesday, communicates the following particulars regarding the wreck of this unfortunate vessel. “This morning's report gives some hope of the recovery of part of her cargo. The chief officer and ship's company have never left the spot from the time the ship sunk till the present moment, and Captain Ross speaks in the highest terms of their indefatigable exertions. They have rigged out a tent with one of the sails and yards to shelter them from the weather, and it is earnestly hoped that the health of the captain and ship's company may not suffer seriously from the

anxiety and exposure connected with their situation. The loss of Mr. W. M. Sheridan is estimated at £2,000, this gentleman having laid in a full stock of every thing it was probable he might require for years to conne. “The second officer, who unfortunately lost his life when the ship went down, had left a wife and six children in England. This is a case of distress which appeals loudly to the benevolence of the Indian community, to whom the cause of the widow and the orphan cannot plead in vain; and who I trust will, from their abundance, spare a small pittance to solace the misery of a wretched family, whose hope has perished on our unhappy shores. I request you will suggest this, in your paper, and open a book for subscriptions at your office; as the deceased, to whom I am an entire stranger, may have no friends in the country to set it a-foot.”— Cal. Jour: June 23.--We learn that all hopes of recovering any thing from the wreck of the Swallow are at an end. The captain, carpenter, and a few of the hands of that unfortunate ship, passed Fultah for Calcutta on Saturday; the rest of the ship's company are at Mr. Higginson's house at Fultah Farm. The poor fellows, we understand, have scarcely sufficient clothes to cover themselves with, having lost not only these, but every other article of property they possessed. Surely this is a case well worthy public sympathy and relief. Even a few articles of old clothing will be useful to these poor fellows. We shall make further enquiries respecting them in course of the week, with a view of pointing out where relief may reach them.— Ind. Gaz.

“We are sorry to report the loss of the Danish ship Nymphn. The passengers and crew were saved by the pilot schooner Hattrass, Mr. Branch Pilot Kymer. The Nymphn hailed the Hattrass on the morning of the 20th June, while at anchor, and stated that the ship was sinking. Mr. Kymer instantly cut his cable, and went on board—found the ship in great distress. Assisted by Mr. Volunteer Waghorn, he used every endeavour to gain on the leak, but without effect. At five 30, P.M. the whole of the crew, &c. were so fatigued, and the water gaining on their exertions, he was obliged to abandon her. Mr. Kymer wished to run her on shore to the westward, but a north-wester coming on prevented his endeavours. When he left her she had nine feet water in the hold. She was salt laden.

Passengers and crew all saved, and most of their clothes: among the former are several ladies and young children. The Hattrass will bring them up to Fultah.”[Cal. John Bull, June 23.
